Railroad posters are some of the best retro posters around, and some of the best were produced from the years 1870 to around 1950. These posters were not just cool to look at, major artists were involved in their design. They were posters to encourage people to travel on rail to the amazing places railroads could take them.
This book puts the American railroad poster into context – not only showing amazing photography of these classic images, but also putting them into historical and artistic context. It’s a nook that celebrates the power of this advertising over nearly a century. There are over 160 posters, images and sketches in its pages. A must for advertising aficionados, railroad fans, and lovers of retro art.
